Remember Pearl Harbor

This 1943 film was started within days of the attack, the original film was 82 minutes long and asked some embarrassing questions, such as why there was no long-range reconnaissance and no short range air patrols. Further, the film had a lot of time devoted to the culture of the 160,000 Japanese in Hawaii and their response to the attack. For these reasons the long version of the film was censored for decades and the shorter 32-minute version released. The attack portion starts at about 40 minutes.
